  • Publication number: 20100327488
    Abstract: A method of making an open ended hollow concrete element includes arranging a mold about a substantially horizontal roller shaft, the mold having a sleeve-shaped mold wall defining the outer peripheral shape of the concrete element and first and second end rims, each with an inner periphery smaller than the inner periphery of the mold wall at the respective end and defining the end surfaces of the concrete element. The mold is rotatably supported by the roller shaft by abutment at the inner peripheries of the first and second end rims so that the roller shaft upon rotation defines the inner peripheral shape of the concrete elements. The method further includes rotating the shaft to rotate the mold; feeding curable concrete to the rotating mold; stopping the rotation of the mold; and removing the cured concrete element from the mold. The inner perimeter of the mold wall defines an exterior shape of the concrete element that varies along and/or radially to the direction of the rotational axis.
